You need to use regular expressions.
Some good examples here which will get you where you need to be (when combined)

Made few changes to @leakim971 sample for validating "It should be max 7 characters long and minimum 4 characters long. The first 2 characters must be numeric. Position 3 and 4 must be alpha, and the remaining positions must be numeric. "

function myStringIsCorrect( myString ) { // return true or false
      return /^([0-9]{2}[a-zA-Z]{2}[0-9]{3}){0,7}$/.test(myString)
}

alert('test 1 : ' + myStringIsCorrect('11df111') );
alert('test 2 : ' + myStringIsCorrect('11dfd') );
